TLC162 Paper Tole and a MFT Sketch Card

Good Evening!
Today was a nice relaxing day with Chloe being on Spring Break we weren't rushing this morning. I had my coffee while browsing the blogs this morning and had very good intentions to exercise but I couldn't figure out Brian's Bose stereo system....lol
So that meant I got to go stamp!!
I did a lot today but can't show some of the projects just yet.
I'll show what I can though ;)
This first card is for the sketch posted in the MFT Forum on SCS. My sponging on the Sage Shadow didn't show up very well in this picture...sorry. The scalloped border was created with the 1/2"circle punch.
Stamps: MFT Ride 'em Cowgirl
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla and DP
Inks: Adirondack Espresso, Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow
Accessories: Copic Markers, 1/2"circle punch, Sponges, Lg Star Punch, Dimensionals
Next is a card I did for the Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS. It was Paper Tole. I love the 3D look of those cards but I don't have a lot of patience to cut things out. That's why you don't see me masking very many images. The dog was stamped three times on WW cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers. I cut the whole dog out and used dimensionals to attach him to the card. Then I cut just his head and ears and attached that with dimensionals. That little dog bone is actually a brad that I decided to just hang with a piece of hemp.

Stamps: Ruff Day, Artistic Impressions; Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Marigold Morning, Wasabi, WW, BG dp; Inks: Adirondack Black, Brocade Blue; Accessories: Copic Markers, Pumpkin Grosgrain, Dog bone brad, Hemp, Dimensionals, Paper Snips

Thanks for stopping by today!
